I'm just starting out I have 3 doelings and will get a buck when it comes time to breed them I'm just starting out and would love some advise and help is appreciated.
ok thank you what age is good for breeding for the maximum number of kitsThey can get pregnant as early as 12 weeks old. But it is not advised to breed them until about 6 months of age. The number of kits varies breed to breed and from doe to doe. Most average about 5 to 8 kits per litter. California and New Zealand rabbits can average 8 to 12.
Average processing age is 8 to 12 weeks, so if you process early enough, you don't need to worry about separating genders.
